    Research needed for autoimmune hepatitis patients' salvage therapy

    Autoimmune hepatitis is a chronic inflammatory liver disease
    not readily treatable for 20% of patients
    by Anne Crawford

    Autoimmune hepatitis is a chronic inflammatory liver disease. The condition is treatable for the large majority of patients. The 20 per cent or so of patients who don’t respond well to standard medicines are treated with “salvage therapies”, but until now these have been inadequately scrutinised for their efficiency and safety, a new paper says.

    Monash University researchers in the Department of Gastroenterology at The Alfred Hospital have conducted a rare, comprehensive review of salvage therapies resulting in findings that could benefit clinicians and their patients with the disease globally.

    Central Clinical School hospitals achieve top results in FRACP examination

    Recent successful FRACP examinees celebrate their pass
    Congratulations to our Basic Physician trainees from Central Clinical School hospitals, who achieved an exceptional pass rate in the recent (delayed) FRACP examination! 

    Alfred Health trainees achieved a 100% (31/31) pass rate and Peninsula Health trainees achieved an 86% (18/21) pass rate.   We would like to congratulate all the trainees for such an outstanding achievement. We would also like to congratulate all our education staff at Peninsula and Alfred Health who co-ordinate the teaching programs from undergraduate through to postgraduate medical education.

    This is a testament to the outstanding education leadership and support for trainees at both sites.
